The East Asian miracle, or its supposed demise, is always news. The Four Tiger economies of Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea have experienced some of the fastest rates of economic growth ever achieved. This book provides the first detailed analysis of the development of education and training systems in Asia, and the relationship with the process of economic growth.

"This is the first book to provide such extensive information about the education and training systems of these four countries. It...makes some important and stimulating theoretical advances.... the book is well researched. The scholarship is excellent to outstanding." -William K. Cummings, SUNY Buffalo
